The Social Democratic Party (SDP) has promised to support and assist the Labour Party (LP) in winning the Benue State general election in 2023.
Engr John Enemari, the state chairman of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), declared at a news conference on Monday in Makurdi that the entire SDP state leadership has endorsed the LP ahead of the 2023 elections.
He added that the move was necessitated by a crisis within the SDP, which he claimed had damaged all of its state chapters as a result of the formation of factions.
Enemari also instructed SDP chairmen, including executives at the 276 electoral wards of the 23 LGAs in the state, to assist the LP for good administration in order to improve the socioeconomic standing of the populace.
He stated, “The incoming candidate (Herman Hembe) is a young man who has performed exceptionally well in his constituency. This is his fourth time serving in the House of Representatives of the National Assembly. My employees are inquiring, “Chairman, where do you want us to go?” My people and I are going to collaborate with him once I met with him and had a conversation.
“What do you do if you lose an election in a political party? Now that they are in court, let them proceed; Benue is not a revenue-generating state for them; Benue now need effective governance. We cannot remain inactive; we must collaborate with those of high moral character to rescue the state.”
